Case Closed

      2 Comments on Case Closed

Well, I think I’ve solved the mystery of the case of severe exhaustion…or at least I have a really good theory. It might seem totally obvious but I guess to me it wasn’t. I eat a really clean diet (at least MOST of the time) and while I allow myself to splurge from time-to-time, this past weekend was a weekend of indulgences – cake, candy, cookies, alcohol, bread. I did my best to make healthier decisions and limit those treats and while I do believe I limited them, it was much more than my body is used to, especially over the course of 3 days. And as such, it took me 3 days to recover.

While I do believe I’ve been more exhausted over the last month or so, there’s a good reason – work has been busy and I’ve been trying to take on more than I should in all aspects of my life, leaving me exhausted all the time. Since I’m learning to say no and better balance my time between work, personal matters, the blog and my social life, I hope this will continue to get better. And since Spring decided to finally shows it’s beautiful face, I always know a quick walk outside to recharge my batteries is just a few steps away.

I got in some incredible runs while in Tulsa and while I have taken it easier on my workouts since returning, I’ve still stayed active and it’s been great. And seriously, I’m loving taking a quick break from my emails to go for a walk around the neighborhood mid afternoon.

To anyone counting, this makes my FitFluential March Miles total to…44.25. (Please note, my workouts listed above don’t account for ALL the miles that I include as my warm-up/cool-down at the gym). Will I hit 100 by the end of March? Probably not, but you know what? That’s okay. As much as I enjoy the challenge, it’s also about listening to my body and doing what is best for it. But I’m also not giving up and maybe if my afternoon walks keep up, I’ll get there. 😉

      I did a big clean this weekend. My roommate’s out of town for the next week so it’s nice to have a clean place that I know will stay cleaner this week with only 1 person (and no dog) to dirty it up. 😉
